Lisa Mussak practices as a Licensed Acupuncturist in the State of Wisconsin, having earned a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine and a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. Following her graduation in 2007, she completed an advanced acupuncture certification and internship at the China Academy of TCM Hospital in Beijing. Her training in Beijing focused on the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in an outpatient setting, including work related to both fertility and women's health.

She most commonly sees those seeking support with reproductive health, including female and male fertility concerns, menopause, pregnancy and postpartum, birth support, and other women's health concerns related to the menstrual cycle. Lisa's customized approach involves tailoring a plan to work specifically for you and your treatment goals. She offers both Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture, along with herbal formulas and nutritional supplementation.

Lisa enjoys providing integrated care to patients, and always welcomes the opportunity to coordinate with other health care professionals throughout the course of your treatment.
